The End is Nigh
The end of waiting for the book, that is! Yes.
Last week I literally jetted over to Barcelona to see the first print run of the special backer editions. The quality is astonishing - all the screenshots are super-crisp and the black is really vivid. Which is important for screenshots of old games because a lot of them had black backgrounds with very little in the way of graphics on top...
I have attached a brief video so that you may experience our excitement second-hand.
The books are currently being bound and having holographic foil applied, and will be on their way to the UK very shortly. Next Thursday I shall be nipping off to the warehouse and signing thousands of them, and then they'll be sent off to you. After that they should arrive at your address, and then you can read them if you want!
By an incredible feat of speed, Penguin have already printed some of the trade editions and sent them to reviewers. These are the standard books that will be sold in shops and through Amazon etc. I haven't seen one yet but I'm told they're very nice, although as nothing compared to the lovely backer editions you folks are getting.
Thank you again for your support, without which there would be no book for anyone. I really think you will enjoy it.
